A way more articulate argument for closing Portland Ave than I could come up with!

http://closeportland.org
A debate exists online and perhaps in real life over whether or not we ought to close Portland Avenue through the new, not-yet built or even designed or paid for Downtown East Commons in Minneapoli...

I'm on the bandwagon of referring to Minnesota as The North

And while we're at it lets also adopt a much more identifiable state flag. Something without settlers & guns.

This intersection is a constant near-miss accident area for the Green Line LRT. The problem is cars are turning right from Huron Blvd northbound to University Ave eastbound even though they're not suppose to.

Traffic lights turn green at the same time the light rail is allowed to cross the intersection. Car drivers make the right turn into/in-front of the trains that they think are waiting.

I sketched out a few ideas that might help in the below images. I know more signage usually doesn't help, but I think if you delayed giving cars a green light and let the train proceed through the intersection early it could help prevent the near-collisions.

Yes, it's all harassment. She doesn't know you. She doesn't give a shit who you are. You're talking to her out of nowhere because you think in some idiotic way that she might be interested. She's not. You're not interesting or attractive, you're acting desperate and creepy.

After attending the second meeting for the design of the new Commons park I was disgusted to see there's still a road cutting it in half. Everyone seemed resigned that this was just how it was going to be. I refuse to accept an iconic new location for the city should have some ugly car sewer slicing it in half, so I created a petition for Hennepin County to close Portland Avenue. Give us back our .6 acres of land and let this be one stunning park for people, not cars. Please sign if you have a moment. Thanks everyone!
Downtown East Commons  park is being designed as an icon for the City of Minneapolis. A postcard for the active, engaged, and urban character of the city. However, Hennepin County refuses to close one block of Portland Avenue; a three-lane, one-way road which will cut the park in half. We deserve better than having a road chop through the middle of our new landmark. Please sign and tell Hennepin County that the Commons will be a place for people,...

So mock craft beers and then try to show how giant-factory-hand-crafted your beer is? Why not just run an ad that says, "Budweiser: For people who don't like beer".

A strange inside work joke.
 
Help put pressure on KSTP to apologize for their racist story. #pointergate 
Navell Gordon deserves an on air apology from ABC affiliate KSTP for their #pointergate story.

Delicious brunch items, but a bit small so order two. Quaint space feels like you're dining in someone's house. Decent beer & wine list.

The food is well prepared and there is a nice ambiance. Not really quiet or loud. Food is really good, but portion size is a bit smaller. Prices are average to a little on the high side for gourmet dining.
